backup camera aside I can confirm what everyone has posted here, it feels a little quicker between menus and it seems like there is added voice command functionality. Nothing visual other than the aforementioned touch areas and axing your wallpaper

thanks Ford, now where the F is applink already?

Just installed the 3.6.2 update on my 2013 Titanium. I noticed those blocks in the backup camera screen. Can't quite figure out what good they are.

Also, when I pull the paddle to give a voice command, a help screen pops up.

Also, I noticed that Sirius XM stations now display the artist and song title on the main screen. A nice feature.

Hey Ford (or is it Microsoft?), please put the speed limit on the main screen as well. Plenty of room there.

Also, isn't there room for the date AND the time at the top of the main screen?

Also

Just noticed this: When I press the #2 paddle on the right side of the steering wheel, it now goes to the Settings screen. Used to go to the Sync screen.

Hey, ISAAC_268,

I suggest calling your local customer relationship center at +1 (1) 313 594 4857. You can also try finding a dealership that has access to the U.S. database.

MFT and SYNC go hand in hand here, so I'm going to say no. Unfortunately, I don't know much about the systems sold outside of North America and I don't want to steer you in the wrong direction; I think calling your Customer Relationship Center would be your best option. :)

MFT is broken, or it's just my car, but it won't index a usb drive that worked with my previous focus, none of the voice commands would build and instead it keeps crashing and rebooting the MFT screen. Not happy.

Running the latest update, and on a drive that indexed in less than 1 minute on sync w/ myford it's taken a long time and not building any voice commands at all. The fuse pull hasn't worked, and nothing seems to have fixed it.

Planning on trying a different drive, but I don't think the USB drive was the issue.

You might be surprised. A different drive may do the trick. For some reason v3.6.2 seemed to affect the performance of some drives, even drives that had been used successfully in the past for some (including myself). Case in point, I had a drive I kept in the car full-time that had the delayed reboot on it. I have had it in the car since v3.0.2 and had always used it successfully through versions 3.0.2, 3.2.2, and 3.5.1. Always worked fine. After the v3.6.2 install my delayed reboot stopped working. I deleted delayed reboot, reformatted the drive, and added a fresh copy. Still nothing. I got a new drive and threw the delayed reboot on it and it worked like a charm.

Worth a try. BTW, not sure how it was w/Sync-MyFord but it seems one bad tag can really throw MFT for a loop. If you try a new drive with no success, you might want to try just adding only a few songs on a drive, checking each tag by hand to make sure they are clean, and seeing if it can complete the process on just a handful of songs.
